Free agency is winding down, and the visits have begun. Some teams needs have been met, while other teams are counting on a good draft to place them into contention at best, or in a positive direction at a minimum. Some players have elevated their play from a first round pick to an NFL hall of fame career, while others have squandered the opportunity and fallen from the public eye.
When the NFL season begins, we’ll learn which team prepared best, assessed talent the most effectively, and managed their salary cap the most efficiently. But, for now, each team and their respective fan base can envision their best possible scenario for an NFL season. Part of that scenario is anticipating which player will be drafted to your team in the 2014 NFL draft. The right pick can set the team up with a perennial pro bowler, and possibly launch them into playoff contention. The wrong pick can set the team back, and out of post season discussions. That’s the thrill of the mock draft. That’s what NFL fans love the most.
So lets get to the 2014 NFL round one mock draft, shall we? I’m eager to see who the Eagles will end up with.
